Since Gary has been dxed with Devic's, MS's evil twin, I have been able to step back and question MS therapies.

AZT is given lots as well as methotrexate. Cellcept, what Gary takes, is newly being considered. Devic's is an autoimmune disease as ...

Not about MS but really interesting

Watch the movie"An Inconvenient Truth" it's a documentary with AL Gore and the time lines that they establish for when and where things started to go seriously wrong are much the same time lines when disease's started to appear more frequently. Industrialization as well genetically modifying and a host of other's are all caused ...

Epigenetics radio program

I just heard a podcast of a CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corp for the non-Canadians out there) radio program on epigenetics. It isn't about MS specifically, but if you are at all curious about epigenetics, it's an enjoyable, accessible introduction. From the attached link, it's the November 22 selection.
